Alice Wishes Happy Trails

To the current Lief, the Lief incoming, every Dorian Gray- Alice wishes only the best. She can only vaguely imagine what sort of nightmare it would be to be unable to live in her own body, with herself.

The myths of Narcissus and Dorian Gray are so similar. Many people are beautiful. Or maybe that is Alices perception? Alice has accepted many people as beautiful regardless of what current terminology suggests.

However, beauty and even caring are not enough. Alice has had a good friend. A friend that she managed to keep from Lief, a friend who wouldn’t desert her, a friend that she struggled whether or not she should date to him or Lief over…he became and stayed friends with Alice. Through everything. The most embarrassing acts that could be imagined- too late- she couldn’t help it and loves the other man. And is just realizing it now.

Born a first generation American, half Irish Catholic and half Persian Jew, I like to write about a childhood mired in the chaos of never knowing where I stood. The only constants in my life have been reading, writing and a passion for social justice. I am a nurse, a single mother, a domestic abuse survivor, radical feminist and outspoken advocate for logic, public health, gray areas, and purposeful dialogue. I know entirely too much about sociopaths, autism, and medieval British history. I write under a pen name to protect the privacy of my family.
